Still buzzing out at the moment guys!!..just came home from a 12 day gold sabbatical touring around the south Island…hooking up with quite a few local prospectors from this group and others…was totally amazing!!..5 days dredging on a 8 inch,river fossicking up in the Aorere PFA and surrounding areas…and finally was lucky enough to gain access to a vast remote Quartz reef area…detected chunky gold (7 grams)straight out of an array of mineralized quartz veins with the gold monster…did heaps of km’s…lost 4.5 kgs and came back with over 44 grams of gold.(and still counting…still got some species to bust open!)…will be a while before I release any trailers or vids on Youtube so I’d thought I’d start off by loading up a selection of photos… I’m afraid I can’t reveal the locations of most of it…feel free to guess!


Wow…way cool Mal. Happy for you. Cant wait to see more.
Best of luck out there

Serious work Mal, great underwater filming, loved the rock dance. Thanks for sharing.

awesome Mel never get sick of watching gold vids

Thanks guys!..I was suppose to stay dredging for longer but unfortunately my ears couldn’t handle the long dives and they became infected…we’ve only just healed actually…pretty gutted …was starting to get the hang of it …dredgers are hard arse MF…I reckon!!..respect!!


swimmers ear drops work, been there with infections , broken bones ect you right tho some gold dredgers are hard arse and just suck it up , excuse the pun other pussies don’t get there panties wet let alone get under

Earplugs any good?..keep the water out…after years of panning I realize all gold is at the bottom…get a dredge…lol!

vosol its called is in a small bottle squirt a couple drops in your ears ,not sure about ear plugs I doubt they would stay in , I learnt couple of things over the past 15 years about dredging , and that’s all the gold is on the bedrock and all the gold is on the bedrock ow and panning tells you nothing

earplugs will burst your eardrums DO NOT TRY!!!
Even a very tight fitting hood causes extreme discomfort when the trapped air pressurizes as you go deeper then a meter or so.

tried vosol and found it to harsh on my ears and would sting and itch badly just dry your ears every evening after dredging, I just twist up a bita cotton wool so its skinny and wick out the water its prob not the best but works for me (earbuds dont soak up much either)
